Heating System at UK Scout Headquarters Protected by BoilerMag Commercial Filter

Heating System at UK Scout Headquarters Protected by BoilerMag Commercial Filter

The heating system of the UK Scout Headquarters at Gilwell Park in Chingford is now protected with a BoilerMag XT heating system filter. Hertfordshire based installers Mechanical Control Ltd replaced two old Strebel boilers with new Ideal Evomax boilersin the plant room, and installed a BoilerMag XT to prevent the build-up of ferrous oxide in the heating system.

Wesley Warren, Operations Director at Mechanical Control Ltd said: “It’s quite an old heating system, therefore we wanted to offer the best protection for the new boilers. To do so, we needed a good quality filter that could be easily removed and cleaned.”

Wesley continued: “We have used the domestic BoilerMag filters on many jobs and always been impressed with the quality, so we decided the commercial BoilerMag would be the best way to go. The magnet looks great and the unit was really simple to install and maintain. We will be fitting BoilerMag XT commercial heating system filters on all future plant upgrades.”

The plant room is situated in The White House, which has been the UK headquarters of The Scout Association since April 2001. The building also serves as a hotel with 41 guest bedrooms, and has a number of conference rooms on the ground floor. The White House also houses a bar in the Group Room, and a canteen-style restaurant.

Ideal for large heating systems, Boilermag XT utilises high performance flow technology to ensure that virtually 100% of unwanted debris is removed from the heating system. This helps to reduce energy bills, increase the life of the boiler, and reduce maintenance call outs.

As the UK Headquarters for the Scout Association, Gilwell Park is a camp site and activity centre for Scouting and Guiding groups, as well as schools and other youth organisations. The site also houses a training and conference centre.

The BoilerMag XT is available in sizes 2” to 12”, and has an operating pressure of up to 12 bar. It also comes with a 10 year warranty. To find out more about the BoilerMag range of heating system filters, please visit, call us on 0114 225 0624, or email
